Now you KNOW I wasn't going to let the week go too far in before I spoke about this game right?? I may be too busy to post on a daily basis (although I've been hitting it hard lately) but there is NO way I wasn't going to to a quick blurb about this epic Chiefs win. There were just too many storylines and/or issues that I had to address. Starting with the subject you see at the top...
You're used to seeing a number that that's reflective of the Chiefs' record. Which means it should technically be 6-8 if I was being accurate. I decided to switch it up in this case. Because to me I could care less what the Chiefs record was after the Green Bay game. I already know that they have a losing record. I already know that they aren't making the Playoffs. That didn't matter. What mattered is that they were the team to keep the Packers from going into the Playoffs with a perfect record. While no one else could find a way to stop the alleged juggernaut that was allegedly Green Bay, Kansas City did.
It's so funny to me that Packers' fan try to rub it in by saying it doesn't matter because they're still going to the Playoffs. Yes..we KC fans know that. We could honestly care less. It's not even about that. What they don't seem to understand is we're having a TERRIBLE season. Therefore, we have to relish any victory we get. And when that victory comes against the defending Super Bowl Champion, it really is a big deal.
I had a personal victory myself with that Chiefs' win. G has continued to remain a huge Packers' fan. I still cannot figure out why even after talking to him repeatedly about it. Even after continually reminding him that he has more of a connection to KC than he does to Green Bay. My best guess is he still doesn't understand bandwagoning. Regardless, when the Chiefs won I was able to gloat endlessly. He still refuses to watch any news story that talks about the game. He knows what's up though.
I really like the fact that it happened right after Todd Haley got fired and Romeo Crennel took over as the interim head coach. He couldn't have faced a tougher task. He had to take on the World Champions with a depleted roster. I personally thought he didn't stand a chance. Which is why I didn't bother looking more serious into getting tickets to the game. Goes to show how much I know. It was great weather AND he pulled off the amazing upset. I could have been at that game just like I could have been the ISU game where they beat the #2 team in the nation. I really need to work on my judgment calls.
Wait...I know I did NOT see the Chiefs' players give Crennel a Gatorade shower for that win, did I? Yes, it was a huge win, but come on. It really was not THAT serious. That was definitely being a bit too extra. Now if it ends up that Denver goes on a losing streak while the Chiefs go the other way and actually get into the Playoffs then I guess that Gatorade shower wasn't such a bad thing.
